The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required and understand the steps and timings involved.

It’s that time of the year again when ghosts and ghouls come out to play! And while it can be fun to decorate your house with fake spiders, cobwebs, and skeletons on Halloween night…what about planning a few more spooky treats for your little monsters?

These Monster Rice Krispie Treats are fun to make, and you can even get the kiddos involved!





Older kids can roll the balls of cereal into the monster treats, and younger kids can push in the eyeball sprinkles.

Then all you have to do is wait for them to set and they are ready to enjoy!

The recipe as given makes 12-24 treats, depending on the size of the cereal balls that you roll. Make a whole bunch of the Halloween rice cereal snacks for a party, or just a few for the family as dessert.

Ingredients for Monster Rice Krispie Treats

Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It does not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
